The Public Records Act lists types of documents exempt from public inspection and copying including the disclosure of lists of individuals for commercial purposes.
Payment of fees may be made by cash, check or money order payable to “Port of Kennewick.”
An estimate of the copy costs will be provided to the requester so that they have the opportunity to decline to have the copies produced. For larger requests, a deposit may be required. The Port may also require the payment of the remainder of the copying costs before providing all the records, or the payment of the costs of copying an installment before providing that installment.
If a requestor has not reviewed or claimed records within 30 days of notice that records are available or fails to make payment, the Records Manager may close the request. If requested records contain information that may affect the rights of others, before providing the records, the Records Manager or designee may give notice and allow time for action by the other parties. After a request has been filled, if the Records Manager becomes aware of additional documents existing at the time of the request, those will be provided to the requestor on an expedited basis.
Please download the Printable Claim Form and return completed packet to the Port via mail.
